In sub-zero temperatures or searing desert heat (-50 degrees to +130 degrees Fahrenheit, and altitudes of 30,000 feet to depths of 15 feet in salt water) the waterproof, shockproof, fogproof SS performs. Whatever the weapon, from .223 to .50 BMG, the SS handles the recoil. Whatever the target, the SS gives you the best advantage. Made of lightweight aluminum but strong as steel, it has superior multicoated optics for maximum light transmission. Built to NATO specs.

    SWFA SS 3X15 mil scope

    Posted by Thomas Wimbush on Feb 1st 2024

    SWFA is an outstanding company to do business with. The SS 3X15 Mil scope is an excellent product. I've used their scopes out to 1200 yards and could easily see targets at 1400 yards. I can recommend SWFA and their products! They stand behind their products.

    Perfect customer support

    Posted by Taylor Snipes on Jan 24th 2024

    I bought this scope used. Took it on a couple mountain hunts this past November and put some meat in the freezer. But what really impressed me is that I screwed up and accidentally unscrewed the front lens off the tube — there was a shade tube on from when I bought it, and I wanted it off for the hunt. I was forthcoming about my mistake, but they told me to send it in anyways for a replacement with a new scope. Sent it in, it was processed almost instantaneously, and I was then given a store credit for the full retail value of the scope. Could have bought anything I wanted. I got the exact same scope as a replacement and received it 3 days later. All I had to pay for was shipping. Now, if it were SWFA’s fault I would hope shipping was covered (probably would be given the outstanding treatment I was given)… Overall, the scope does what you need it to do and holds zero when you go ass over head and tumble down the mountain with a deer on your back. Haven’t had any reason to think — I need a $2-3k scope to replace this. I’ll be a SWFA customer for a long time.

    Installed this optic on a X bolt chambered in 28 nosler. Great glass and great tracking turrets.

    Phenomenal scope

    Posted by Todd Clyatt on Nov 15th 2023

    Only one range secession but tracking was absolutely perfect. Ran several test of up 1 mil, fire a shot, back to zero, up 2 mil etc all the way to 10 mil. Each dialed mil was right on point and matched the reticle. Pushed out to 800 on steel using a mix of dialing and holding with flawless results. Glass is significantly better than an older SWFA 3x9 and almost indiscernible from a 10x HD. Will probably grab another one for an AR build.

    Awesome scope

    Posted by yarydarb on Apr 10th 2023

    Just love this scope. Exceeds all expectations and comes in under budget. Comparable scopes with these features and performance would cost me over $1,000.

    Great Value

    Posted by Ron on Jan 27th 2023

    Mounted this scope on a .22 PCP air rifle. Glass is very good, tracks perfect, reticle is good as it gets. The PCP with a rainbow trajectory, the reticle and elevation tracking makes 50 to 100 yard easy. I would buy this scope again, very pleased. SWFA's customer service is very good, others should copy.

    Great value FFP scope

    Posted by Yoder on Dec 7th 2022

    This scope is a great value, aside from good glass and consistent turret tracking with both audible and tactile clicks you're getting: *FFP reticle (with mil reticle you can range targets at any mag range) *Adjustable Parallax from as close as 6m up to infinity *Matching MIL/MIL reticle and turrets *Good glass (Japanese glass, not HD but still very nice) *3-15x magnification range is versatile for shooting close or far *30mm Tube and HUGE RANGE of adjustment (36 mils) so likely wont need a 20MOA or other canted base *Integrated knob/lever on magnification ring so no need for throw lever Although the scope doesn't have illumination or a zero stop you can solve the latter buy purchasing a kit for $22 (search YouTube or SnipersHide forum and you'll find them) and it certainly works as I've installed a set on mine. I dont need illumination for what I'm doing and for the price point i'm already getting great value. I highly recommend this scope.
